A skilled premader has an average lower skill than a skilled pug. The pugger has had to adapt to better spatioal awareness, not being able to rely on the teammates doing exactly what he is expecting them to do and not having a know team composition.
Basically, a skilled pugger has had more challenges than a skilled premader. Hence, better.
even if truth, omg,***,ftw skilled uber pugger will loose cause turret defender will go afk or follow 'that recruit sage is is to scared to come any closer' and will get ninja capped
(for the record, I do both, mostly solo que)
Pugging, I have to adapt to stupid, premading I have to adapt to team play.
Grass is always greener on the other team..
